They are gone – Wayne’s old WBC’s are finally gone. So how can that be so bad? Well, having some white blood cells hanging around is the reason Wayne has felt as good as he has. (He may have a much different opinion, but for now, because of all the fluids he has received he can not read anything, I take liberties. You will know when he is able to read himself, I am sure he will correct me.) Now the bad old WBC’s are gone, but they did not go easy. They left behind havoc. Thus, the dreaded double-edged sword. Without WBC’s there is nothing to stop the natural bacteria in or on a persons body from causing all kinds of trouble. Today the trouble takes the form of stomach pains, nausea, cramping, fatigue, fever, chills, diarrhea, inability to eat. He is now receiving medications for the gram positive bacteria, gram negative bacteria, pain meds, meds to treat the fever, oxygen, meds to stabilize his vital signs, etc, etc, etc. Who knows what tomorrow will bring. This is not for the faint hearted.
